This link up was shown to me by local John Myles and it is a lot of fun.

Start as for Whales Tail (V4+) and traverse left onto the slopey shelf that starts Ahab Calling (V3) then get your feet situated, move your right hand up to the obvious crimp and make a long left hand move up to a good crimp then make a long right hand move(crux) to the top of Captain Condor (V5).

Although it is a link up it climbs like an independent line so it deserves its own route in the database.


One the Barn Door Boulder, start as for Whales Tail (V4+)and traverse through Ahab Calling (V3) and top out with Captain Condor (V5).


Pad and spotter.

This is another little known route at The Pound that deserves way more credit and ascents! Jump on it!
